Breethe, thanks for checking in despite computer problems. Feeling pretty tired might be more about diet, than exercise – how’s your protein? Exciting to be losing inches!
Pam, an encore career is appealing, but, I fear that this is a young person’s game, the body does get less able (although there might be a valuable role for older trainers who know about that!). sounds like a challenging Cross Fit.
UrbanMule, sounds like you chose your name wisely, you are stubborn, glad to see Coach jumped in to keep you from getting hurt!
Today was a short run (5K in 30 minutes, with a fancy elevation program, I slowed down to 6 MPH fo rth high hills, and pushed at 7 mph for the lesser elevation stretchs. This was followed by a good boot camp class.
The Y is doing great, they lowered fees (how many organizations send you an e-mail saying “we’re lowering our rates”), and they have lots of early morning people now – we ‘gymmers’ support the overall program (you know, the kid stuff, the computer training, all the nice responsible stuff that makes me love that it’s a Y!). Classes have been nice and full, not too full but enough to make it feel like they won’t cancel.
Weekend is going to be bad, we’re taking a little 4 day celebration trip to Chicago, where we met, dated, and went to school together. I do not plan to behave, and it begins tomorrow.
